Israeli startup env0 provides automated, collaborative remote-run workflow management for cloud deployments. The company has closed a $17 million Series A funding by M12 – Microsoft’s Venture Fund, and included existing investors Boldstart Ventures, Grove Ventures, and Crescendo Ventures. env0 has now raised a total of $23.8 million to date.
IBM explains that DevOps tools help developers and operations teams build, test, deploy and monitor applications with speed, quality and control. According to IBM, successful DevOps software implementations generally rely on an integrated set of solutions, or a toolchain, to remove manual steps, reduce errors, increase team agility and scale beyond small, isolated teams.
And everything is being done in the cloud these days. Whether you use MS Office on line, Google Docs or any other kind of software as a service on line, you are using cloud computing. Both the programs as well as your files are being stored in a cloud. And major companies are switching over to the services of cloud computing companies every day, replacing their in house servers.
Founded in 2018 by Ohad Maislish and Omry Hay and headquartered in Tel Aviv, env0 automates and simplifies the governance of cloud deployments for Terraform, Terragrunt and IaC frameworks, offering a collaborative remote-run workflow management. The company boasts that its solution addresses the need for provisioning and compliance of changing cloud resources. env0 states that it enables users and teams to jointly share configuration templates using remote state file storage to prevent drifts and accelerate code deployment. env0 fully integrates with CI/CD pipelines and VCS tools and delivers full CLI support to “ensure a smooth, flawless process.”
“After moving our cloud deployments to Terraform, we required an automation layer to streamline both mundane and more advanced IaC automation processes,” said Amit Daniel, DevOps Team Lead at JFrog. “We found the env0 platform to be feature rich, offering unique capabilities such as custom flows. In the end, it was a very effective solution that simplified our Terraform workflows and improved collaboration.”
We are excited to announce the closing of $17M in new funding (series A), led by @M12vc along with existing investors @Boldstartvc @GroveVentures, Crescendo. We are grateful for our community of clients, partners, investors and most importantly our super great team! #IaC pic.twitter.com/75gEP68VI0

“While Infrastructure as Code reduces cloud implementation costs and provisioning time, env0’s powerful IaC automation platform significantly simplifies implementation for organizations, dramatically improving governance and collaboration capabilities,” said Mony Hassid, Managing Director and EMEA Lead, M12. “The company’s team and technology are bringing innovations to market that empower the next generation of cloud deployments.”
“The majority of companies today are embracing IaC frameworks, especially Terraform, since manual cloud provisioning is no longer a viable option. However, those frameworks were not built as complete business solutions. env0 is doing to IaC frameworks what GitHub did to Git, providing management, governance and collaboration capabilities,” said Ohad Maislish, env0 CEO. “With these innovations we are seeing phenomenal demand and impressive adoption rates. We are pleased that M12 and our existing investment partners supported this round of funding which will take us through our next phase of growth.”
